Vineyard Notes
The 2019 winter brought extremes: warm 12° January days to lows of - 22° and lots of snow in February. When the buds started pushing, we noted that the colder months had resulted in a bit of bud and vine death in our Naramata Bench Vineyards. Bud burst was two weeks later than average due to the long winter. The beginning of Okanagan spring was one of the driest on record. However, by the end of June, the valley saw a cooling trend that lasted through most of July and brought much precipitation. At the end of July, the real Okanagan summer started with hot sunny days and little precipitation. The grapes soaked in the summer heat and quickly made up for lost time. Veraison in our reds happened right on schedule. September was wetter than usual. October was dry with 15° days and 2 to 6° nights.

Winemaker Notes
Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Merlot bunches were hand picked and sorted in the vineyard. The pressed juice from the crushed grapes was left of the skins for four hours, then cold settled and fermented at 15ºC to preserve the bright fruit flavours. The yeast consumed most of the grape sugars leaving 1.75 g/l and yielding a wonderfully rich dry rosé.
